Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

As some of you must have seen, I baked this gorgeous chocolate chip banana bread for my sons Fine Arts Gala at his school. I kid you not, it was wiped out. Nothing left!! Made me rather happy I have to say.

Now, if you are looking for something healthy in this recipe, you may be disappointed. It does have a good amount of sugar and chocolate chips but you will not be disappointed.

So go ahead and indulge.. happy baking!
